    Report on-board Kerrykim

    I've finally got round to putting some new catch photos on the site. These are by no means all the pictures we have taken, it's just that I am a bit slow putting them on. We have had many fine fish lately of many species. The Mackerel have been patchy although we did have a 2 1/2 lb one. The fishing is still good and most species are still about and we do a lot with individuals. We have spaces at short notice so please give me a ring. Compare our prices!
    looking forward to seeing you.

    Report on-board Gwen-Paul-M

    I went out with my son on the 21st of August with Carl on Gwen Paul from Conwy. Started a little slow, but when we found the Mackerel, we caught plenty to keep us in bait and for those who wanted to take some home. I really wanted to catch a Tope, but Carl wasn't hopeful. We ended up landing 4 on the boat, ranging from 15lb to a 30lber caught by my son. Lot's of other species, dogs, bull huss and whiting but the Tope were the stars of the trip. Great day out, very good and patient skipper . Would definitely recommend.

    Report on-board Bad Boyz IV

    Absolutely no words can describe how I am feeling right now!

    Today we boated a fantastic Porbeagle just shy of the 100lb mark, an outstanding battle taking 2hrs 20 minutes on 20lb class Pollack set up, the first to be safely landed and released on a charter boat from Anglesey ������

    A huge achievement for the lads on-board to whom I can only thank for making this happen ��������

    Shark on!!!!!!!

    Fun day afloat today, after a slow drift the anchor soon picked up for the afternoon with a plentiful amount of huss and small thornbacks.

    Some nice tope landed too and a few spitting the hook partway through the fight.

    Enjoyable day down the Llyn today, with plenty of rays and huss the mainstay together with a few bream and a good mixture of other species.

    Tried for tope and connected with two, sadly one spat the hook and the other steamed off like a rocket, through other lines and after a 10 minute tussle snapped off.

    Another good fun day. More photos with this report here

    Report on-board FairWay AQUA STAR

    hi out over weekend plenty of tope about especially on sunday 8 landed with many break outs with larger fish. NOTE tope fishing off amlwch can be caught very close in due to the deep water so windy days can be quite productive . mackerel about but offshore 2 miles. reefs producing wrasse and Pollack if you have ragworms bit too windy for offshore wrecking at the moment due to wind speed but very large Pollack on wrecks this time of the year. wreck fishing with me for 10 hours is very reasonable ring for details

    Report on-board Privateer

    5 anglers fished our species match today, with the 5am start probably putting off a few travellers. As it turned out it was pleasantly warm and with the dazzling �� deck lights the guys were comfortable setting up as we steamed out to our first mark of the day. By the time the anchor was set we were all treated to the sun peeping over the horizon.

    To the action, the theme of the day was set with 5 different species in the first fifteen minutes, all the anglers contributing and by the time the tide eased the score sheet was beginning to look quite busy �� .... As slack water approached we pulled anchor and moved onto the drifting. Wrasse fishing being a big favourite of mine. The next hour turned out to be quite difficult ... for no apparent reason, except maybe the excellent water clarity over the marks but some nice Ballan wrasse to about 3lb were caught, 15 between the anglers but poor cod, Mackerel, Gurnard and Codling made up the bulk of the action ... thats fishing so another move was made back onto anchor. Plenty of variety and the boys kept the scorer busy, maxing out on on a fair few species and adding a few more.

    As time rolled on and after pasties and more tea, we moved to the final mark, picking up a couple more species including three small feisty Tope and some reasonable Smoothounds and decent Huss.

    As the 'whistle' blew for the end of the match, it was hard to tell who was victorious ... but giving the hard working anglers time to tidy their tackle I went thru the score sheet, before heading for port.

    With a max of ten of each species the five anglers, returned 280 scoring fish between them and 19 species :

    Tub Gurnard, Dabs, Dogfish, Bull huss, Ballan Wrasse, goldsinny Wrasse, lesser weaver, Thornback ray, Codling, pouting, Poor cod, Grey Gurnard, Plaice, Dragonet, Ling, Mackerel, Whiting, Smooth hound and Tope.

    The winner : Dewi Roberts who travelled across from Anglesey and scored 367 points and 14 species. Well done mate ���� in a fun but competitive day you did the business ������

    All in all an enjoyable day with plenty of fish and banter .... and it didn't even rain ��

    Not had a report for a while but thats not because the fishing has dropped off, far from it although there is a lull in the Tope action and the larger ones have proved hard work to find. Small ones are plentiful and growing fast and I expect those that survive till next year will come back large and fighting fit. In fact it has been noticeable how healthy and well fed all the species are this year. Even the often, too prolific Whiting we caught offshore last week, were pot bellied with quite a few very good sized ones already. I've probably mentioned this before but the Rays in the next few years should reach some specimen sizes and the numerous Tub Gurnards should get back to the sizes Rhyl was famous for, before the wind farm work, which will I hope be very nice for all. I honestly couldn't number all the species we have had in the last couple of weeks but its certainly respectable and even the odd Herring has not left the area.

    This coming Month I am away for a week Conger fishing in Weymouth and I only have one date free so lets hope the weather remains kind. On the 1st day of September, i'm running a fun species match and I still have places .. if interested please message me �� .... i'm quite excited and I'm not even fishing lol .... the trip is 9- 10 hours to fit all the marks in and will cost £45 per angler. Its a 5am sail which is a slight bummer ... but it will be worth it.

    Lastly Subject to weather I plan to have an evening into night trip, trying to get a Sole on the boat. Friday 7th September. 7:30pm till 12:30am. Quite specialised but will be quite something if we could find a few.

    All the best and tight lines.

    Report on-board Incentive

    Not posted in a while. As like with all skippers with this weather we've been busy getting out. Fishing is changing trip to trip, and that's IN A DAY, not a 'you should of been here yesterday' story. One trip good fishing, the afternoon a little quiet. Or vice versa. But we try out best as always.
    This last few days has seen plenty of mackerel which is good as they were late to show. Alot of which a good size.
    Around 20+ species landed over the last few weeks. Which adds to the variety.
    A few individual spaces left this month so give me a call if you want to get out.
